Panna National Park of Madhya Pradesh spreads through Chhatarpur and Panna districts. This is the fifth tiger reserve of Madhya Pradesh, but is more famous for its bird population. This park has received several recognitions for being one of the best managed parks of India. Apart from the birds and tigers, the place is famous for deer, wild cat, antelope, black buck, and others.
The park is primarily a thick teak forest with gorges beautifying the place. The foliage has thick cover of eccentric flora. The gorges and the waterfalls add more beauty to the park. This is why most of the tourists prefer boating as much as safari in this park. Once it was a private hunting area for rulers of the surrounding regions, and later, this park joined up with the Gangau sanctuary in 1981 to become the Panna Park and then, a tiger reserve. According to mythology, this park is one of the areas where Pandavas spent their years of exile.
